brook haven national laboratory, a department of energy lab and one of the largest employers in my district. b&l is also ground zero for many of the scientific discoveries and innovations that have expanded our understanding about physics and nature, many of which have a direct link to developing new materials for industry, more effective drugs and better fuel, the intellectual capital that private industry thrives upon. mr. chairman, earlier this year the republican policies embodied within h.r. 1 would have slashed $1.1 billion from the office of science, choking off federal investment in basic research that is the key to our nation's long-term competitiveness. these draconian cuts would have impacted each d.o.e. national lab with a 30% cut to every science facility and program from the f.y. 2011 request level. the number of jobs that would have been eliminated as a result of h.r. 1 is estimated to be close to 10,000 in the office of science. how can any reasonable person argue that laying off thousands of the most highly trained, highly skilled scientists the world has to offer

. . the chair recognizes the gentleman from alabama, mr. brooks, for five minutes. mr. brooks: thank you, mr. speaker. i have voted to raise the debt ceiling where the bill makes america's financial condition better, not worse. both the reid and boehner plans failed to adequately address unsustainable deficits that threaten america with insolvency and bankruptcy. both plans put the debt ceiling issue to 2012 or 2013 at which time a financially weaker america will confront a worse debt ceiling crisis. both plans simply are not up to the seriousness of the financial challenges america faces. washington must put 2012 election considerations aside and put america's interests first and foremost now. congress and the white house can and must do better now. america deserves better now. and quite frankly we have no choice but to do better now. years of spending binges have come to roost. america has suffered $3 trillion deficits and faces trillion dollar deficit noose the foreseeable future. annual deficits and accumulated debt force america to confront two major financial threat, both with one comm
